Highly ornate Italianate three storeyed private residence with bilaterally symmetrical facade. Corps Avant articulated by two giant-order Ionic Columns flanking a central recessed bay.

Built for Castello by Damstra. He lived here with his first wife.

The tempietto (at the back) was originally the voliere.
